There are 2 potential approaches to doing that.  Neither is a
stupdenous amount of work.

1) We could use a copy of the interface for the write-excel module
   which instead of writing excel used some xml utilities to generate
   gnumeric files.

2) Another alternative would be to use the core of gnumeric directly
   via a libgnumeric and some sort of scripting interface (again via
   something like the perl module's interface)
